Protest Xi: Dictator of the Unfree World [New York]
October 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
China will be celebrating Xi Jinping’s leadership this October.
With the stability-obsessed party not wanting to run the risk that anyone or anything offers a distraction. Tibet will be closed to tourists, WhatsApp has been shut down and security has been tightened across Tibet and China.
But really there is nothing to celebrate. Under Xi’s rule, hundreds of human rights lawyers have been arrested or disappeared, Larung Gar destroyed, increased and continued self-immolations, Tenzin Delek Rinpoche killed in Chinese prison and Liu Xiaobo silenced to death. Another 5 years of Xi Jinping’s rule is frightening. We must take the 19th Party Congress as a opportunity to highlight Xi Jinping’s dictatorship and failed leadership and we must shake world governments into action. We must remind world leaders Xi Jinping is not the solution and China is not the answer!
